I wrote to the Meridian Electric Co. about their night light warranty and the ludicrous idea they expected twice the cost of the light to get a not-so-free warranty replacement. They wrote back claiming that it was “a misprint from a few years ago” and all I really had to do was send back a defective night light to get a free replacement. That being said it would probably now only cost me 80% of buying a new one to mail back a defective unit and wait for them to mail me a new one . . . While I stumble about in the dark damaging myself.
The nice gentleman who replied did however confirm that they had indeed “received a few of those returns with checks enclosed” but that the checks were “returned to the customer along with their replacement.”
So yes, people really ARE that stupid!
